Wall Decorating (without a lifetime of regret)

So sorry for the radio silence you guys- life has been so busy! I’m finally sitting down and catching up on blogging while Ava is napping.. let’s see how long I actually get to “work!” I wanted to do a quick post about some ideas I had for people renting or people who are not…

Kids Decor Pillows

For a number of years I have pinned and saved pictures of pillow DIY’s- from mountains to houses, numbers, letters- you name it. There’s something about an over sized piece of fruit or number that yells “I am fun!! Your baby will love me!” There are so many companies out there that make absolutely adorable…

Tea Favours

With so many girlfriends we have a lot of Wedding Showers and Baby Showers. We are always looking for new and exciting games or favour ideas- it’s hard to not double up sometimes! I made these test tube tea favours for a girlfiends baby shower a few months ago. They are super easy to make…

Kids Bedroom Inspiration

It is not secret that I love looking at kids bedroom ideas. There is something extremely fun and exciting about designing a space for a little one to explore every day- at least I’ve found it to be so! A bedroom needs to have the necessity of storage and a bed but then everything else…

Bedroom Update

I was explaining to a girlfriend this afternoon that I am itching to do a DIY/Home project. I know our bathroom renovation is off the list for a while (tears were shed writing that sentence) and I’m pretty happy with Ava’s bedroom and playroom.. so.. the next item on the list is our bedroom. I…

Kids Playroom Makeover

After thinking about it for a few weeks we finally took the plunge in turning our guest room into a playroom for Ava! The couch that’s in the playroom is a double bed so we can still have guests etc. The room is not completely finished but It’s good enough for now! Ava loves it!…

Birthday Party Thank You Tags

For Ava’s thank-you’s Greg and I made up fairy floss ice cream cones. My inspiration came from Pinterest.. We placed them in plastic sleeves, tied them off with pink ribbon and added a little thank you tag. I placed lollies (candy) on the tables so I didn’t want to give our typical lolly bags as…
